Gluecifer is a hard rock band based in Oslo, Norway. Formed in 1994, they produced several underground releases during their first years of existence and soon claimed to be "kings of rock".


In 1997, the album Ridin' the Tiger (released on record label White Jazz) provided an artistic and commercial breakthrough and placed Gluecifer among Hellacopters from Sweden at the forefront of the Scandinavian hard rock wave of the late 1990s. Basement Apes, their fourth album, saw them signing with Sony Music, and Automatic Thrill became their biggest-selling record to date.

The band played at the 2004 Quart Festival as warmup for Monster Magnet.

In July, 2005, the band announced their break-up.

Gluecifer counted as one of the most successful rock bands of Norway.

To the Norwegian Film Izzat Gluecifer contributed the Song Desolate City. The song was released on the compilation Kings of Rock - B-Sites and Rarities in 2008.

In 2006, Captain Poon startet his new band Bloodlights.

In the film The Social Network the song Black Book Lodge can be heard as a part of the soundtrack.

On October 9, 2015 all regular studio albums by Gluecifer were re-released on Captain Poon's own label Konkurs Productions as LPs.[1]

In 2016 Captain Poon was on tour as guitarist in Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg.

On November 21, 2017 Gluecifer announced a show at the Azkena Rock Festival in Bilbao in June 2018[2]. After that more shows were announced, by now eight dates are confirmed.
